For instance: Let's say that I've got many customers and that we're not working in product mode, but rather in project mode with specific features or behaviour for the different customers.
We detect a bug for a customer, We have no way to find which other customers will be impacted without looking in every branches or tags.
I think subversion need to be able to provide a clear vision of all the target of the different copy of a particular path (clearly the way to get a rapid and sure revision graph)
